The parent company of the world's second-largest stock exchange wants a piece of the crypto cake for its own. Nasdaq has confirmed media reports that it will launch a crypto custody service for institutional investors. At the top of today’s Real Vision Crypto Daily Briefing, Paul Guerra and Ash Bennington talk about what this big brand's move means for the broader crypto market. Paul and Ash also discuss crypto market maker Wintermute’s loss of $160 million in another DeFi hack. And Coinbase is trying to simplify Web3 access by offering its customers Ethereum domain names for free. Paul and Ash close with an in-depth review of Elaine Ly’s recent conversation with Laura Shin, the host of the top crypto podcast “Unchained” and the author of "The Cryptopians: Idealism, Greed, Lies, and the Making of the First Big Cryptocurrency Craze." It’s all here: the ETH Merge, what comes next, and whether Bitcoin will succumb to pressure and transition to proof-of-stake. We want to hear from you too – please share your questions in the chat!
